Paper Abstract

An adaptive correlation-based tracker has been developed. It uses discriminant nonlinear filters which offer more robustness to noise, background, and object distortions. Computers simulations show test results for a small target tracking, and good capabilities are demonstrated without post-processing of the correlation plane. The algorithm developed here works where well-known linear filters failed.
